The Presentation of the Awards took place on Sunday 26 January 2020 at the Jury Inn Hotel, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire Congratulations to all those SWA members who took part in this very prestigious competition, it grows every year and becomes more and more competitive so anyone who manages to be in the rankings is doing very well indeed. Firstly our teams did well especially when you think Clwyd won the Area Association class with 18995 points, over 7,000 points ahead of their nearest rivals from Home Counties.

You have to enter the WPCS Performance Awards as an individual but obviously the SWA pays the team entry – forms are on the WPCS website.

Good luck everyone and keep the SWA flag flying – you are all doing so well!
